    Child Watch® Column: “The Seed Experiment”
    A perennial favorite science project from preschool on up is the “seed experiment”: A child plants identical seeds in two pots. She places the first pot inside a dark cupboard and leaves it there, and she puts the second one in a sunny spot and waters it every day. She waits to see what will happen. It’s very easy for even the youngest children to figure out that their seedlings need the basics—sunlight and water—if they are going to survive and thrive. The same is true for children.

    Child Watch® Column: “Making Strides for Preschool”
    We know high-quality early childhood development and learning interventions can buffer the negative effects of poverty and provide a foundation for future success with lifelong benefits, particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable children. Studies have shown children enrolled in high-quality early childhood programs are more likely to graduate from high school, hold a job, and make more money and are less likely to commit a crime than their peers who do not participate.

    Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2013 (S.1086) Provides Necessary Changes to Improve Quality of Child Care for Children and Families
    The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the primary source of federal funding for child care, but CCDBG has not been reauthorized since 1996. The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2013 (S.1086) would reauthorize CCDBG and takes important steps to improve the quality of care for children, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable; establishes minimum health and safety standards in child care; and provides additional supports to assist working parents in finding high-quality care.
